Peel rivets

Recommended Posts



Anyone used peel rivets? I'm just wondering how to go about getting the correct length. 

Hi much should protrude out the back before you rivet them?

Not scientific, I guessed and bought some 4mm x 16mm Peel rivets. Fine on bonnet catches and roof poppers for last three years. Did a trial and “curls” round nicely.

I measured the two materials, added their thicknesses together, then looked at a pop rivet chart online that gave the correct size rivet to use.
